biden's demeanor cost him the victory . we report and you decide. >> steve: vice-president biden telling us who is to blame for the botched consulate attack. he said the intelligence community and sy. here is a comment that had back scratchers scratching -- fact scratchers scratching their head. >> brian: wait until you hear who won an award. "fox and friends" starsts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: yeah. the debate just ended. the president of the united states said at the last debate he had with mitt romney he was too polite. joe biden last night didn't have that problem. he was trying to stop the erosion. and many independents were heading over to the republican side . joe biden was joe biden in so many ways. his demeanor was extraordinary. >> gretchen: i thought it was totally overthe top disrespectful. just speaking as a woman and i want to know the difference in the gender opinion. was this more offensive to women, men or either? maybe women have felt this more often. i could not believe how disrespectful he was and being from the midwest as paul ryan is as well the

watched. steve hayes for stand stand. mara liasson, national political correspondent of national public radio and syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. okay, steve, the libya situation, today's hearing and what you just watched in context. >> i think the timeline that you just played is absolutely jaw-dropping. there are so many times that the administration makes claims that are inconsistent with one another and inconsistent with what virtua virtually everybody understood the ground truth behind the attack. we saw examples throughout the hearing today. one interrogation by congressman james langford of oklahoma. he was talking to a senior state department official, lamb, who is in charge of security there. he asked her in detail about where she was that evening, night of the attack, september 11. who she was talking to, what she was doing. she answered him in some detail. i was here in the united states new york contact with people on ground. as all of the attacks were unfolding. i talked to them all night. i talked to them in next day. getting details what about precisely had hap

in the panel. joining me here in danville. steve hayes, senior writer for the "weekly standard." and juan williams, columnist with the hill. and from washington, this is a privilege because his nats are playing, syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles, we know it's 1-1. we start with you. your thoughts? >> well, look, normally, historically there has never been a vice presidential debate that affected a presidential election. i think the reason it might be different this time is that democrats biden is going to try to relitigate the catastrophic presidential debate. whether was unusual about -- what was unusual about the first presidential debate, it was so decisive. 7-1 advantage in public opinion for romney. and second, it was decisive without a zinger, without a gaffe. device i on point. it was romney piling up arguments, facts, about what he would do, what obama had done. won him the debate. so that gives a opportunity to the democrats in this debate to try to undo that with what we heard from stephanie cutter that either the republicans are lying about what they want to do.
